Well, that was the dumbest thing ever...(mostly craft related...)

Fun times in crafting...

Yesterday, my friends and I were shopping for a birthday present for a party last night, so of course...we decided to all meet in a sex toy shop in the area of the city known for gay nightclubs. I was walking down the street, like twenty minutes early, so I duck into a sewing shop. I talked myself out of buying everything really neat, but I did need a new embroidery hoop, so I got a 6 inch purple plastic one, said I didn't need a bag, and continued along my merry way.

I stood there in the book section of the sex store, and every time someone walked anywhere near me, they'd look at me strangely for a few minutes, then move away. It was...a little weird. Finally, my friend shows up, and she does the same thing...stares at me. I kinda go "What?" and she points at the purple plastic in my hand and replies, "How the hell do you use that one???" *headdeskheaddesk* Apparently...not that many people use embroidery hoops, or at least not enough to recognize one in that sort of context. Even the gal behind the desk said, "We don't sell those, do we?"

Awkward.

Anyway...

To make it at least a semi-legitimate post, I've been having problems. I'm trying to sew a little teeny felt fish, and I can't seem to get the last part. I sewed him right-sides in for most the way, successfully turned him inside out with his splendid fins intact, but I can't seem to get the rest of it done...it just sticks out so weirdly I'm afraid to sew it. How do you finish sewing teeny felt things?
